Life at standstill at Livermore, also Livermore Livermore was among the towns hard hit by last Wednesday's storm. The electricity went off about 10 p.m. Tuesday and was off until 3 a.m. Thursday morning, part of the town having no electricity until Thursday afternoon. Those hardest hit were the ones having electric heat or nothing but electrical appliances which gave them no heat in their homes and no means of cooking. Most homes however had a gas stove for cooking so by lighting the oven lots of kit- ChenS were turned into living quarters. Water pressure was greatly reduced through the day and completely shut off through Wednesday night. Due to the 50-mile wind several antennas and trees were blown down, also quite a few large branches with smaller twigs being scattered all over. Drifts were several feet high blocking streets and driveways. No mail or delivery trucks came into town and traffic was practically non-existent. Most business places did not open at all but the two restaurants were open which helped solve the eating problem for some. Livermore experienced a similar black-out about 19 years ago but of a much shorter duration. EYE SURGERY Mr. and Mrs. Roy Salmon and Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Thompson went to Cedar Rapids early Tuesday morning to see their son Denny Salmon.
